She is a graduate of Swarthmore College, and is retired from many years in the corporate world. Rona currently serves as the Co-Regional Advisor for the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of SCBWI. She is an active supporter of diversity in children’s literature, especially picture books, and is a volunteer with We Need Diverse Books.

When she is not engrossed in Kid Lit, she enjoys traveling with her husband, Andre. Rona lives in the Philly suburbs but would prefer the perpetual sun and palm trees of southern California.
